The UK might be kicked out of EU plans to build an alternative to GPS - The Verge 

According to the FT, British companies are likely to be excluded from building components for Galileo satellites, and the UK military may be barred from using the encrypted positioning data these spacecraft will provide. As the paper notes, the creation of a GPS alternative is of “significant strategic and commercial importance” to the UK, and plans outlined by the European Commission (the legislative branch of the EU) would damage not only Britain’s aerospace industry, but its national security as well.

Whoops. I’m sure they’re saving so much money in EU dues that they can just build their own national version.
